Cheryl Peters – Girl Illustrated Vol.3 No.27 Cover (1969)

Cheryl Peters on the cover of Girl Illustrated Vol.3 No.27 (1969) posing in a very nice sheer black negligee. Girl Illustrated must be one of my favourite vintage magazines outside of Harrison Marks publications. The size and quality of the publication was exceptional, which shows today as copies still look good and go for high prices when up for sale. They were also full some of my favourite 1960’s/70’s models including many that posed for GHM.

C is For Coon (Xmas Calendar)

Caroline Coon as Mary Stephan (Blonde wig) in the uncensored version of a shot originally published in the Kamera Winter Special (1966). This version, which I prefer was actually published in Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.2 P42 (1969). 

Diane Grant – Another Lush Bush! (1969)

The second shot of Diane Grant from the Harrison Marks publication Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.2 P11 (1969) on the cottage kitchen set. Both editions of this magazine were full of glorious uncensored shots of models with their magnificent lush bushes on full view.

Li Wing – A Beauty From The Gods! (Original)

A great rear view shot of a new Harrison Marks model to me, Li Wing (I think!) on the Egyptian set. Li also appeared in the 1969 GHM film ‘Nine Ages of Nakedness’ both in story 2 “The Egyptian Age” and posing as a muse in Story 7 “The Poet”. I must get a copy of that film as I don’t have it in my collection yet, unless anyone has a decent copy?

June Palmer – Bathroom Beauty (Original)

A simple shot of the stunning June Palmer posing naked on a chair in a marble covered bathroom. Taken by Harrison Marks, shots from this set also appeared in the first edition of New Kamera published in 1969. Thanks to Kevin for the copy of this original negative of June, which he is also currently selling over on his eBay site here.

Virginia Jones by Harrison Marks

Another model that posed for Harrison Marks, that until yesterday I was unable to identify, but now know it’s Eve Davis Virginia Jones. Eve was an actress that appeared in many small parts for UK films including ‘The Nine Ages of Nakedness’ in which she was spotted by GHM. He then asked her to pose for a set of images, one of which is above, with a collection of the rest being published in New Kamera No.1 (1969). Which is where I saw her yesterday as I have a copy of New Kamera No.1 and happened to look through it and found Virginia/Eve and a couple of other unnamed models I’ve now been able to name!

Totally Trudy (1969)





Five shots of Trudy Eyre (Angela Duncan) taken by Terry Sparks. As I said in a previous post I hadn’t realized that Terry had taken any photo’s of Trudy until he sent these, but then he explained he had and that her real name (or name on the cheques) was Trudy.

A couple of things you will notice about these shots. Some are very familiar and if you look on some of the vintage forums you will see similar images to these at the same location that have been published in various men’s publications during the late 1960’s and 70’s. Secondly and unfortunate, these images are only small and not up to the usually high standard I get from Terry, but there is a reason for that, which I’m sure Terry won’t mind me sharing. As Terry explains –  “My own black/white files, some 27000 negatives were all destroyed in 2003 at the behest of her indoors. Something I have bitterly regretted ever since, as they would have been worth a few bob on Ebay. The only good news is that I took three or four shots of the best girls and transferred them onto a SVHS tape before the destruction took place. I am hoping to be able to digitise the tape onto my PC and then get some prints off, so far without much success.” Well Terry managed to get some images off the tape and those are the ones above.

Hearing Terry’s story I think I was as gutted to hear this story as he was! Think of all those great images I could have shared, but then I realize what I’ve already seen and shared and I’m glad Terry has shared what he managed to retain. Plus we do get a glimpse at some of the models such as Trudy that he had the pleasure of shooting over his career.

Thanks to Terry as always for sharing an insight into his collection 🙂

A Bushy View of Sue (1969)

Sue Owen in the undergrowth down by the river as she poses nude leaning against a tree! Taken by Harrison Marks this uncensored version of the shot appears in Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.1, P44 (1969), unsure if a censored version appeared anywhere though? A great view of Sue’s lush bush as she leans back and the location looks to be on a familiar river edge, probably on location at one of GHM’s favourite haunts down in Cornwall?

Val Van Dotson – Fantastic Name & Body!

I first came across Val in a film by Arthur Howell called ‘Brides in the Bath‘, which I’ve posted over on my Just June Site, as it starred June Palmer plus many other models photographed by Harrison Marks. In that film she went by the name ‘Vanda Vane Dotson’, but also appeared in Spick & Span and Girls Illustrated as ‘Wanda Van Dotson’ (Below)

Other than those few appearances I can find very little about her and even if that was her real name? Real or not it was a cracking name to have as a model and one you don’t easily forget! Saying that she also has a great body in the shots above, but in the film doesn’t get undressed at all, but plays quite a frumpy Matron. I think I prefer her as above 🙂

Neve’s Natural Look! (1969)

The model known only as Neve posing for Harrison Marks on the Lantern Cottage Set from Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.1 P28 (1969). A stunningly beautiful woman facially, with a very Latino look, but she also had a great body to show off, with a magnificent full pussy on show as well!
